Adult Congenital Heart Association's Colorado Regional Conference is a dynamic partnership between Children's Hospital Colorado's Heart Institute and Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) with additional support from UCHealth.

We invite adults living with congenital heart defects, family members, friends, and healthcare professionals to learn more about specialized lifelong care for adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD) and connect with one another.  You will have the opportunity to listen and learn from many of our region's experts in adult congenital heart disease (link to detailed agenda below.)  Both ACHA President & CEO, Mark Roeder from Maryland, and ACHA Board Chair, Cindy Huie from Mesa, AZ are looking forward to being with us.

Please join us on Saturday, May 4, 2019. Registration begins at 8:00 and the program is from 8:30 am until 4:30 pm. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Pre-registration for patients, family members, and friends for this event is $25. Register at the bottom of this page. If you register before April 25, 2019, you will receive a $5 discount to the conference. On-site registration is $50.
